Sorcerous Spyglass Discussion

Dispossess could be good in side with all the vehicles decks and the few Gift ones still around. Also helps with opposing Ballistae. If nothing else you get to search library and can see what sideboard stuff they brought in. Sorcerous Spyglass great for shutting down Teferis, etc. Looks solid, +1

I appreciate it multimedia thanks for the upvote.
I have tested all 3 of the sideboard options you went over rather extensively. Negate+Duress is 2 cards to do less than Lost Legacy-negating the card disadvantage in most cases. Sorcerous Spyglass is a dope card I currently use as sideboard in my mono-white midrange. I have not tried it in this build.
That said, Moment of Craving is really strong against mono Red, green and b/r aggro decks. The 2 life gain cant be over stated in getting to the late game an assisting with card advantage against the faster decks.

Hey, looks good. I suggest a few more Swamps and a few less Islands because of Aetherborn and Push. Black is more important early game than blue. Consider 8x Swamps and 3x Island?
I agree with you Lost Legacy is not a good card. I suggest simply playing more Negates in the sideboard instead of Legacy. The one/two punch of Duress and Negate gives Dimir a sideboard advantage in control matchups. Sorcerous Spyglass is also pretty nice right now. Seal Away is a problem for midrange in control matchups; Negate is a way to countered Seal. I think Cast Down is a better sideboard card than Moment of Craving being able to board in more Down is very helpful. The cornerstone of red aggro right now is Goblin Chainwhirler and the counterstone of mono green is Steel Leaf Champion. Push and Craving as early game removal is not very good to stop these cards, but Down can kill either of them.
Consider this sideboard:
- 4x Duress
- 4x Negate
- 1x Spyglass
- 2x Tracker
- 1x Gonti
- 2x Down
- 1x Contempt
Good luck with your deck.

If you want to have another silver bullet card, Sorcerous Spyglass is a version of Phyrexian Revoker that allows you to see your opponents hand! Excellent against commanders like Experiment Kraj and Mairsil, the Pretender

Argy What did you mean about not being allowed to ID at FNM level? Don't the MtG Tournament Rules allow you to draw at any sanctioned tournament (which any FNM should be)?
x12721 I had to think for a bit before I worked out what seemed off about your deck. Then I realised that you have no sweepers in the mainboard. I highly reccomend some number of sweepers. Probably 3-4 main and then none side (2 Fumigate and 1-2 Settle the Wreckage ). The reason for this is that control decks which go 1-for-1 with opponents (as your deck does) fold to decks which make lots of creatures. That's why I played grixis instead of UB last season - it had a better matchup against the aggro and token decks.
If you add sweepers to the main, I would probably move at least 1, maybe both Vona's Hunger to the side, or maybe cut one altogether because 2 seems a little clunky to me. I also think that Dovin Baan is poor in general, and isn't particularly strong in this deck more than otherwise.
Finally, I think your sideboard is a little sub-par. You should definitely have 2 Authority of the Consuls and some number of either Regal Caracal or Lyra Dawnbringer. Given that the meta has adjusted to Lyra, I would suggest Caracals. I don't think you really need 2 Nezahal, Primal Tide. They are a house against control, but you also need to run enough denial still.
Unwind is a cool spell, but I don't think you need it as well as the 3 Negate. Probably play another copy of Duress though, because it's arguably the most impactful card against control. I would also recommend a Sorcerous Spyglass because it is amazing. You also probably need some number of disenchant effects, so either Invoke the Divine or Forsake the Worldly.
Finally, other sideboard cards include Doomfall, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Lost Legacy if you are worried about Approach (although I think it is less necessary at the moment), and Arguel's Blood Fast which is great.
I know that I have suggested a lot of sideboard cards (more than you have room for), so sorry for that. I basically took the most impactful cards from my UW and Grixis sideboards and suggested them.
Also, sorry for the really long post, I didn't originally intend it to be this long. Also sorry if it sounds like I don't think your deck is good, that isn't the case. I just think it needs a little tweaking.

Sorcerous Spyglass isn't allowed in Brawl anymore. Just wanted to mention that in case you're not up to date yet with the Brawl banlist changes.
